The Field Museum contains permanent exhibits that range from the earliest fossils to present cultures around the world. Attracting nearly 2 million visitors each year, the museum houses a collection of over 20 million anthropological and cultural artifacts from distant corners of the globe. The museum includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex named "Sue," the best-preserved fossil ever discovered. Named after the person who found it in 1990, the fossil stands 4 m (13 ft) tall and is 67 million years old. You can also visit the exhibit recreating an Egyptian burial chamber, which contains 23 real mummies, and a section devoted to the natural habitats of animals and insects living underground.

The quality of the exhibits here are very good! They do have a lot of exhibits but most of them didn't really interest me. We did absolutely love the Egypt exhibit, the dinosaurs, and the traveling mummy exhibit. The 3D show "Museum Alive" was cute and very well made. The bathrooms were immaculately clean. What made me rate only three stars was how extremely expensive everything in the museum was and how quickly we got through the entire museum.
Decent museum, lots to see the and the exhibits seem well put together. However, general admission was pretty expensive and most of the exhibits are only accessible by paying additional fees. If you wanted to see everything you better be prepared to spend upwards of $100 per person. This is a sad money grab and frankly ridiculous. All exhibits should be included in the price of admission. There are several other museums in major cities that include all exhibits with the price of admission and offer better displays. They also take items from the general exhibits and put them in the extra cost exhibits to make you pay more for things that should already be available for viewing with your ticket. That's just wrong. Toronto and New York offer a far superior experience.
